Trump acknowledges he repaid Cohen at least $100,000

President Trump acknowledges, for the first time, that he repaid his attorney Michael Cohen at least $100,000.

That's according to the ethics disclosure signed by the president.

It renews questions about Trump's ties to porn star Stormy Daniels and about the payment Cohen made to her of $130,000.

The disclosure underscores the inconsistency of explanations by Trump and aides.

It happened before the presidential election to buy her silence over an alleged sexual encounter with Trump in 2006.
